Buzz has been floating around as Shabana Azmi joins Swara Bhasker and Divya Dutta in the Faraz Ansari’s upcoming directorial venture titled, Sheer Qorma. The veteran actor Shabana Azmi remains to be the latest addition to the cast of Faraz Ansari’s upcoming directorial venture Sheer Qorma. The movie is also featuring Swara Bhasker and Divya Dutta in the lead role.
As per a press release that was issued by the makers of the film, it is supposed to be a “heart-rending narrative about the longing for love and acceptance that is felt by queer children in their parental homes. The story of the film goes on as played out through the form of delicate story-telling that will be depicted through the characters of the courageous queer women of colour.”
“Divya Dutta recommended the Sheer Qorma script to me. I was moved by it and met Faraz who came across as sincere, honest and deeply committed to the story. The bonus is working with Divya and Swara so we reworked the dates a bit and I said yes. We had the first workshop yesterday and everything came together organically. I am looking forward to the shoot,” Azmi mentioned in a statement.
Ansari on having Shabana on board who is one of the most critically-acclaimed actor on board is a wish come true for him.
Quoting the same, the director said, “The character that Shabana ji essays in Sheer Qorma is going to not only resonate with mothers all across the world but will also open a much needed dialogue about parenthood, and with not just parents of queer children but a more universal dialogue that I hope will bring a lot of love back in our universe. Shabana ji’s character in Sheer Qorma is the mother we all deserve.”
